Last month, when Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, 79, visited Hong Kong I heard a quote on a TVB news clip (June 19, 2009). Buzz was asked to describe, and not for the last time, how he felt about the moon landing (or being in space), and he graciously and humbly replied that he had a feeling both of “magnificence and desolation”.
Perhaps “Magnifisolation” should be a future term to add in the dictionary?
Definition: a profound feeling of utmost brilliance mixed with unbound bleakness.
In celebration of the Apollo 11 40th Anniversary of the First Manned Mission to the Moon.
